Just Imagine a Gang of Kids Rolling Up With This Thing On…

Man programs robots to create live drum & bass…

…and it’s actually pretty cool.

This is drum & bass piece performed live using an automated drum kit and other percussion, playing together with a selection of vintage and new analog synthesizers.

All the sound is being generated in real time, the analog synths coming through the main rack mixer and the robotic percussion being recorded by microphones.

List of the main gear used :

Modulars : Roland System 100m (sub bass), Roland System 700 (basses), Doepfer system (stabs and atmospheric sound).

Other Synths : Yamaha CS-10 (more basses), Studio Electronics Omega 8 (chords and atmospheric sound), Korg Monotron Duo (more basses).

I’m not even a Star Wars nerd and I think this Aloha Yoda print is some of the best shit I’ve ever seen in my entire life. Fuckin Yoda mixed in with some flowers. Amazing.

In case you haven’t figured it out, Vans has teamed up with Star Wars for some Star Wars inspired Vans goodies (duh). This project came out pretty awesome overall. Click below to eyeball all the softgoods and to get all the info you need.

I had a friend send me a link to Eddie’s site recently, and I was really digging his photo work. I had seen some images floating around tumblr, so some looked pretty familiar to me…but there were a lot more gems to be seen. Looking at his site it seems he dabbles in some video and more….go give it a look!

Also speaking of tumblr give the defgrip tumblr a follow!
